    Default FUT Scar Solutions

    Hi all,

    Question: I'd like to know if anyone can show results of FUT scars that have been treated or revised with some method besides just FUE to camouflage (i.e. derma roller, laser, microneedling)? After a couple of major transplants I notice my hair is continuing to thin and I will likely need to accept and buzz/shave in the future. Just wondering if there is hope to conceal this scar with really short hair.

    Background: I've had 3 transplants (1 FUT 2000 grafts, 1 FUE to fill scar 300 grafts, and 1 FUE to fill the front/top/crown 5000 grafts).

    Photo attached. Note that these pics are just before the last FUE surgery so the hair in back will be thinner.

    Thanks,
    S

    You could look into SMP into the scar. I don't have personal experience with it, but I've seen quite a few solid results from that in this forum and others.

    On a side note, your scar is fantastic and barely visible even with a shaved head and a high-res photo. I'm beyond impressed.

    Thanks Pkipling, yea. I am thinking smp as a last resort. Only thing is as I gray (age 45 now) I'm not sure how to deal with the smp not matching (besides using temporary smp).

    At my thinning rate I know I have at least a couple of years before I will have to buzz. This will give me some time to try some things like micro needling, derma rolling, or laser to see how the scar improves. I am thankful the scar is very nice compared to most others I've seen.

    Cheers..

    My question would be why after 7000 grafts do you need to shave your head? Scar isn't that visible shaved, slightly longer hair and I'm guessing it wouldn't be visible at all.
